Hay Festival, Arequipa, Peru

The second edition of the Hay Festival Arequipa began Thursday, December 8, with a full program of cultural activities to be held until this Sunday, December 11. For the second consecutive year, the event brings together a wide guest list from 15 countries who participate in talks, debates, lectures, readings, shows and workshops.

In this festival of culture, Peruvian writers Alfredo Bryce Echenique, Alonso Cueto, Fernando Ampuero, among others, will speak. Other international guests included Nobel Peace Prize winners Jody Williams (USA) and Ahmed Galai (Tunisia).

Others include Britain’s Nell Leyshon, performing her monologue El Show de Gary, a first-person account of an edgy, dodgy and endearing character who lives on the outer limits of society – both socially and legally. The monologue is adapted from the Spanish translation of her novel “Memoirs of a Dipper” recently published by Sexto Piso.
